triangular shape over Georgetown, early 1980's

I can't remember the exact year that I saw the craft, I do remember that I was at least 8 or 9 years old, so I'm guessing it was around 1981-82.

I remember standing at the end of our driveway waiting on the school bus. It was early, 6:30ish, I also remember that it was overcast outside, whether it was cloud cover or fog, I do not know. The weather was mild, maybe spring or early fall.

I remember looking up for some reason or other and seeing "something" in the sky hovering no more than a few feet over the trees. It was almost like it was using the clouds or fog as a camouflage. I never heard any sounds or felt any breeze or wind from any aircraft type vehicle. The aircraft that I saw was shaped like a rounded triangle with red and blue lights, I can not remember if they were flashing or solid. The color of the entire thing was silver, not like stainless, more of a brushed nickle color.

Being that I was a young child at the time, I was terrified and ran back into my house to get my Grandmother. By the time we got back outside so I could show her what I saw, it was gone.

My mom's house is no where near any Air force bases or airports, so it couldn't be passed off as any type of experimental airplane.

I haven't seen anything like that since that day. Although my children have often told me of unusual things they see in the sky.
